Editorial Reviews

2008 album from the Australian singer, songwriter and performer best known for his stints with Crowded House, ALT, The Finn Brothers and as frontman for Split Enz. With The Conversation, Tim has delivered his most intimate album to date. Recorded at Roundhead Studios in Auckland and featuring only vocals, guitar, piano and violin, the record was conceived to be almost like chamber music, where the individual instruments come together to create something much greater than the sum of it's parts. Co-produced by Ethan Allen and former Split Enz member Eddie Rayner, the 13 songs that make up The Conversation are fragile, yet self assured, with Tim's distinctive vocals and lyrics being the primary focus. Virgin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tim's best since "Before and After" March 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to this CD for about 2 weeks now, pretty much every day. It's kind of a throwback to Tim's earlier, less electronic stuff. I loved Say It Is So, kind of liked Feeding the Gods, and really loved his earlier stuff. I'm really glad that he went back to a more acoustic, stripped down approach (and using his great falsetto a bit more).

Tim's voice sounds so damn good without all the filters and noise. I'm not going to go through all the tunes on the CD, but if you liked/loved Escapade through Before and After, you'll love this CD. It's well worth paying for the import, seeing as it may be a while before it's domestically available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic Tim Finn June 13, 2009
By Joop PH
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nice record, goes back to his earlier days. Focus on melody and voice, sparse arrangements. Unfortunately a bit expensive and no digipack as you should expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous album January 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD
As a long-time Finn fan (Tim & Neil both), I have been going back through the entire output of each, from Split Enz through to today. This album is not one that jumps out at you the first time, but it grows with every listen. It is now my favorite of all Tim's albums, and maybe of all the albums he has ever been on. It is more mature, stripped-down and pure than any of his others. I put it right up there with other acoustic sleeping beauties like Paul Simon's 'You're the One' and Dylan's 'Blood on the Tracks'. Standout tracks for me include 'Invisible', 'Rearview Mirror', 'Fall from Grace' and the single 'Out of this World'.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Sun Reveals the Day April 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This set has been out since 2006. It took me a long while to discover it and decide to pop for the import price. I'm glad I did. There are some gems on this set. "Out of This World" is a lovely track that lifts one out of the mundane everyday issues and measures it against the infinite possibilities with a chiming magical guitar part, "It's only when I look into your eyes, I can see beyond what I fear inside; I love the way you remind me it all belongs to eternity." That track is priceless! "Imaginary Kingdom" was the title of another of his CD's issued the same year. This pared down rendition allows the lovely melody to shine with Tim's vocals floating into the higher register, offering some romantic realism. "Forever Thursday" is another delightful track with the violin giving a hint of bluegrass, "You revealed me to myself like the sun reveals the day." Tim Finn is such an incredible songwriter and musician. While I wish "The Conversation" were issued domestically in the United States, it is well worth seeking out. Even with all the other Finns from his family who record, there is no one quite like Tim! Enjoy!
